Reports about Trump-loving QAnon conspiracy nuts make them look insane — and now they want to sue

Published

on

Believers in the pro-Trump “QAnon” conspiracy theory have increasingly found themselves feeling isolated from their friends and families — and they’re blaming the media for making them seem insane.

Via Daily Beast reporter Will Sommer, a popular thread on the most popular QAnon-focused subreddit proposes suing mainstream news outlets for portraying QAnon believers as wild-eyed conspiracy theorists.

“I’m serious, the MSM is responsible for this sh*t,” wrote one QAnon believer while describing how his own mother recently accused him of being a conspiracy nut. “How many families have been fighting for the past two-years? Breakups. divorces, fired, estranged families and ex-friends. God damn the MSM, I can’t wait anymore. Let’s just sue them now.”

In response to the original post, other QAnon believers chimed in with their own tales of family members turning on them.

“I’m sleeping on the couch again tonight because I had a flair up,” wrote a QAnon believer who calls himself “Covpepe1776.” “I hope this turns out to all be truer than true. My wife wants to divorce me soon possibly because she thinks I’m in a cult group for reading this stuff. It sucks. I’m do sick over it.”

“My daughter and brother will not speak to me,” wrote another believer. “Since my mom and dad are dead, I have none of my original family.”

For the uninitiated, QAnon is a conspiracy theory that posits that all presidents elected before Trump were part of a secret global ring of pedophiles that the president is now currently working behind the scenes to expose. The theory also claims that special counsel Robert Mueller is not actually investigating Trump, but is rather doing the president’s work of investigating the purported pedophile ring.

A mail carrier in West Virginia is facing jail time after he was caught tampering with absentee ballot requests in a way that suppressed turnout in local Democratic primary elections.

BuzzFeed News reports that 47-year-old Thomas Cooper pleaded guilty this week to attempting to defraud the residents of West Virginia of a fair election when he switched West Virginia residents' ballot requests from Democratic to Republican ballots.

Cooper altered a total of eight different ballot requests, although he told investigators that he did it "as a joke" and didn't mean to cause any harm. Cooper's attorney, Scott Curnutte, similarly told BuzzFeed News that Cooper's actions had just been a "silly lark."

Former acting CIA director explains why Trump’s inaction on Russian bounty scandal will make things worse

Published

on

It was revealed nearly two weeks ago that the Russian government is paying a bounty to the Taliban for killing American soldiers.

Since then, President Donald Trump has denied that he and his administration didn't know anything about it. Then he claimed it was a hoax. Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.

Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.
